Black represents authority, power, elegance, formality, death, evil, mystery, strength, prestige all together. Then, black for your Bedroom?….. Let’s see.

Black bedrooms are a challenging choice. If we consider a small space, black is a provocative choice. Surprisingly, according to color experts, this tone’s benefits stretch beyond its space-enhancing qualities. 

Together with the color’s ability to make your small bedroom appear bigger, according to psychologists, black has the strength to:

  • make you feel more grounded
  • may improve your sleep.

Nevertheless, this reveal comes with a warning sign because it should be used with caution. 

Before you pick up the brush, you need to understand the power of this audacious paint idea. Let us consider the points you need to realize.

According to Psychologist and wellbeing Consultant Lee Chambers, “When it comes to our sleep environments, we want them to be dark, cool, and calm, so you would think that black would be a great choice for amplifying that darkness and coolness that helps us to sleep”.

Black does accentuate the cool darkness, he said. On the other hand, black is synonymous with sadness and mystery. Because of that, you have to use it to gain the benefits of the color while removing and ignoring the downside, he further added.

Both warmer and cooler blacks are capable of providing a powerful effect. But you have to pay very good attention to the lighting and the textures within the room. These can really help to take the edge off and create a feeling of coziness and style that bring the elegance of black to the front, according to Lee. 

If you are not being careful with the lighting ideas in your room, there is a tendency to evoke negative emotions. This is especially if your room is a small space. But, when used with precision, correct thought and intention, black gives a very grounding effect. It spreads style and beauty to a functional bedroom.

According to certain experts like Patrick O’Donnell, the Farrow & Ball’s brand ambassador, your black bedroom may be good for your wellbeing, but they are equally sought after amongst color experts too. “Black bedrooms may seem a rather dramatic departure from the perceived norm, however it can be a surprisingly successful option,” he says. 

Black has the ability to cleverly absorb the light of a space, to blur the division between walls – that consequently makes the space feel bigger. This ‘blurred edges’ effect automatically adds depth and dimension to a room. Eventually, this makes the space appear larger rather than more cramped.

In order to gain the full benefits of using black, some experts like Patrick O’Donnell advices you to experiment with the current trends, like color drenching. You can paint your woodwork in the same color – especially if the room has quite low ceilings as this will help emphasize the height of the room, according to Patrick. 

It really is a color that both our wellbeing and interior design scheme will benefit from…
